In my mind, there are 2 considerations: What is in the best interest
of the PMC, and what is in the best interest of the ASF. For
the vast majority of the time, the 2 dovetail v. nicely, and
there are no problems. However, it is possible for things to
conflict, and something that a PMC wants to not coincide with
the best interests of the ASF. Again, I would remind people
of the origin problems with Jakarta as an example.

I feel that the board has the responsibility to look after
what is in the best interests of the ASF. I also feel that
they have delegated this responsibility, as far as "monitoring
and regulating" new projects to the Incubator.
